Against her will, young Zara is held in a nightclub and forced into prostitution by the Mafia. Luckily, she manages to escape and find refuge in the home of Aliida, an old woman living alone on an isolated farm. Zara's traumatic nightclub experience awakens Aliida's painful memories of the past war and the Russian occupation of Estonia. She recalls not only the atrocities of the war, but also the acts she was forced into under totalitarian duress. Now, many years later, with Zara's help, Aliida is finally able to come to terms with her past. The intertwined destinies of these women give the audience insight into the behaviour of people in the difficult and stressful situations where heros are born. However, not everyone has the strength to become a hero.
